Its no Incubus

"Discerning Forces" is not necessarily a debut album, as the group has releases under their original name Incubus, but I list it as such because this is the first album under the moniker Opprobrium. The songs within are fairly average to sub-par mid-paced death/thrash with less layering than usual. The end result is a fairly one-deminsional album with lots of potential but no spark. Perhaps the greatest fault lies within a fairly flat production, though a definite fault lies within their inability to utilize any atypical styles or approaches to the already saturated genre.

Ten ultra Death Metal tracks, which can make your head banging for several days. Massive guitars, strong and technical rhythm section with the drums take the lead part here. Aggressive vocals that bring tp my mind Max Cavalera, and this is a good advantage for the band. The album leaves you breathless from the opening song Digitrap, to the last Awakening To The Filth. The guitar riffs are the trademark of the band, with catchy, morbid, brutal and emotional riffs. Riffs after riffs, the intensity never stops, sheer pounding. The drum patterns, technical fills and total heavy and hyper blast drum speed pounds on the timekeeping of the complex structure of each song, which he also contributes every time during the songwriting development with Francis.

The result: Discerning Forces, a Death Metal album which Death Metal fans have been waiting for and the time has finally come to recognize Opprobrium as one of the greatest Death Metal bands. I am sure all the fans of that kind of Metal music will find this album a great release, because of the feeling that makes an impact on the listener. Hear my words and encompassment to that album, you will warm up.
